These delicious, great to take on-the-go muffins are just what you need to get your morning started off on the right note. They're made with whole wheat flour, wheat bran, ground cinnamon, light brown sugar, buttermilk, and lots of raisins. The hearty, sweet, and creamy ingredients all meld together into one perfect muffin. To prevent the raisins from sticking to the knife when you chop them, coat the blade with cooking spray first. These muffins take just 30 minutes to make from start to finish, so you should always have a batch stored on the counter so you can grab one whenever you may need it.
